Johnson Matthey, (JM), a global leader in sustainable technologies, has again been included in the FTSE4Good Index series, recognising strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices.
To qualify each year, JM is independently assessed according to theFTSE4Good Index criteria. This year JM’s score has increased to 4.1 from 3.9. This places us in the top three percent within the chemicals sector.
The FTSE4Good Index Series, created by the global index provider FTSE Russell, is designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating good sustainability practices. The indices are used by a wide variety of market participants to create and assess responsible investment funds and other products, and JM first qualified in 2003.
Julia Rowe, Group Sustainability Director, said: “I’m delighted that FTSE4Good continue to recognise JM as a sustainable leader in the chemical sector, and it’s great we have improved our score once again this year.
“Sustainability is an integral part of JM as an organisation and is embedded into our strategy. Our sustainability goals and targets provide a clear vision for how we will continue to increase our positive impact on the world, from the use of our products and services to our own operations and how we look after our people and supply chains. Our goals are ambitious, but we look forward to making further progress next year.”
